Do Engineers Need Communication Skills?

Communication skills are one of the most important skills to survive in today’s world. It could be a verbal or written communication skills, especially for professionals who are concerned about solving our life problems.

For example the faculty members including engineering professors and chair department (my PhD research, Concordia University) stressed the importance of the communication skills for engineering students such as writing clear reports, understanding client’s need, and master the verbal communication.

As an example of the communication skills : in 2003 everyone gathered after long tiring days and nights of continuous work, to celebrate the fruits of their hard work and send the air craft to the space…. However the mission failed, only because of the poor communication during releasing the air craft. This was the Colombia.

That is why one major step in my comentment to my clients is to evaluate carefully their communication skills and guide them to acquire and update any needed skills.
